Welcome to Part 2 of our Wedding Gown Tips! It’s every future bride’s dream to wow her husband-to-be as she walks down the aisle towards him. But not every bride knows exactly what she should be looking for in a gown. In this week’s post, you’ll see some great wedding gowns that are sure to make jaws drop!
To ensure that you not only feel, but look amazing on your big day, you need to keep in mind what body shape you have and choose a dress that flatters your silhouette. Here you’ll see dresses for apple-shaped, hourglass or straight body types that will ensure you look incredible on your big day!
Regardless of body type, each woman has her own style. So if these gowns aren’t quite what you’re looking for, shop around in our LightInTheBox Wedding Collection to see more fantastic options!

If you’re apple-shaped, go for a dress that draws the eye upward toward the bodice or neckline. Be sure to avoid ball gowns or sheath silhouettes! Try these styles:
Asymmetric necklines, deep v-neck, scoop neck, a-line or empire waists
Similar to pear-shaped bodies, you should accentuate the smallest point on your waist. Be sure to show off your curves, but stay away from fabrics that are too clingy or tight! These will look fab on you:
Off-the-shoulder, a-line, mermaid/trumpet, sweetheart necklines or dropped waist (to elongate the torso)
If you have a straight body type (athletic builds or broad shoulders), you’ll want to choose a dress that will lengthen your torso & disguise your shoulders. These styles will flatter you:
Bateau necklines, spaghetti straps, sheath/column, ball gown, mermaid/trumpet, a-lines, empire waists
